In a blog posting, Urz Hoelzle, the company’s senior vice-president of technical infrastructure, said that the company used 2.26 billion kilowatt hours of electricity in 2010 — the equivalent of some 200,000 U.S. homes. The company also emitted 1.46 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to the yearly emissions of 70,000 Americans.
For those of us who are worried about polluting the environment, keep this in mind - every time you are on the web(how ironical, I am right now polluting the environment), you are contributing to spoiling the earth!
